"“Do human beings ever realize life while they live it?” 

Fuse Theatre Ensemble presents Our Town, a metatheatrical three-act play which won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1938. The play tells the story of the fictional American small town of Grover's Corners between 1901 and 1913 through the everyday lives of its citizens. An American theatre classic, Our Town investigates the nature of life, death, love, and simple pleasures while teaching us to embrace what we have before it is gone. 

Fuse will be continuing its efforts in expanding the Queer cannon by examining this American Theatre classic through a Queer lens. In our unique production of this timeless script (originally penned by an alleged closeted homosexual) actors from across Queer and gender spectrums will each play multiple characters deconstructing nearly a century of heteronormativity ingrained into its provenance revealing its authentic, yet ephemeral, interior.
